When someone in management sees people that are smarter or more popular than them as a threat and"purges" them. either from that deparment or the company.
The new boss took over at the begining of the month, and Alan and Christy were "stalinized" by the end.
To kill mercilessly, with no regret. Usually by slitting the throat by grabbing a person from behind.
Listen, shut the fuck up or I'll stalinize your ass!
If you don't cut it out I'll go stalin on your ass!
